Sherwood, OR Chiropractor | Active Release Technique

Active Release Techniques treatment is a hands-on touch and case-management system.

ART allows each of our 3 doctors to diagnose and treat soft-tissue injuries. Soft tissue refers primarily to muscle, tendon, fascia, and nerves. Specific injuries that apply are repetitive strains, adhesions, tissue hypoxia (lack of oxygen), & joint dysfunction.

What is an ART treatment like?

Every ART session is actually combination of examination and treatment. The doctor uses his/her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.


These treatment protocols – over 500 specific moves – are unique to ART. They allow our doctors to identify and correct the specific problems that are affecting each individual patient. ART is not a cookie-cutter approach.

Different conditions we treat: Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART.
